Classes and Workshops
The Green Drake strives to increase educational opportunities in all of the arts in central Pennsylvania. We are offering classes and workshops in the visual arts, music, and other art forms . If you are an artist/instructor and would like to consider presenting at the Green Drake, please get in touch!
The Green Drake Arts Community is a critical part of our overall concept and mission. Art is a constantly happening and unfolding thing here. The entire upstairs is dedicated to artists, from hopeful beginners to working professionals, pursuing their creative dreams. Along with several semi-private studio spaces, we have a spacious, well-lit, and equipped room that is open 24/7 to Arts Community members. It is also open to visitors during gallery hours or when regular members have the door unlocked. Those wishing to visit long enough to actually spend some time trying out the space as a "studio away from home" are simply asked to drop a dollar or two in the donation jar to be a "member for the day".
The Arts Community room has easels, work tables, and comfortable furniture for writing, playing music, or just hanging out around other creative people. We also have wi-fi access for those bringing a laptop and a stereo system. Members generally bring their own supplies, tools, or instruments, but there are a few donated art supplies and house instruments around to try out. There is also a kitchen corner with a refrigerator, microwave, and coffeemaker, as well as bathroom and slop sink facilities. And, there is open floor space for those wishing to pursue small-scale dance or performance art activities. As the community develops, we'll try to keep meeting the needs of members.
The annual membership fee is $100. If you are interested in becoming a member or learning more, email us at email@example.com or call Karl at 814-422-8461.
From time to time, we have individual studio spaces available upstairs at a monthly rental rate. These are semi-private and vary from 150-250 square feet. Get in touch to see what may be currently available.
The back end of our large upstairs community room is now available for small group meetings, video or web viewing on a large-screen TV, etc. The space is approximately 350 square feet and is suitable for up to 10-20 people, depending on the use. Cost is on a donation basis, and can be discussed. The main gallery downstairs can also be used for larger meetings or events when not open for business, again on an arranged donation basis.
